Peshawar is the provincial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the biggest city hosting population from all over Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. The projected population is estimated to be 4.4 million people including internally displaced people from erstwhile FATA as well. Peshawar is divided into four towns and 97 union councils. Speedy urbanization for social, economic and security reasons has made Peshawar, the biggest urban slum of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. These slums are congested and densely populated with informal settlement characterized by substandard housing and dirt. Due to poor socio-economic status the health infrastructure is also not up to the mark particularly the immunization services which is contributing in vaccine preventable diseases. Moreover, under Polio Eradication Initiative (PEI) program, Peshawar has been declared as the high-risk district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Efforts are in progress to eradicate Polio from the region but the gains in PEI program can’t be sustained with weak routine immunization program. In 2019, Peshawar has the highest number of children who are not fully immunized i-e 42,147 (20%).To strengthen the district Peshawar essential immunization, it is a dire need to give more technical and focused support in the form of Field Coordinators who will directly work on the ground in close collaboration with PEI structure, Lady Health Workers (LHWs) and EPI vaccinators to improve the routine EPI coverage in each town of Peshawar including the erstwhile frontier region..
The purpose of this technical support will be to
